I enjoy World War II history and the like to see the different perspectives from other nations vs. the US.
This museum is modern, clean and nicely laid out.
It has a rich mix of history available, however, if you do not speak/read Japanese it is tough to take advantage of it.
Even the English head sets where limited to very high level overviews (I would estimate less than 5% of the information was available in English).

The Yamato, largest warship ever built, was constructed in the Kure shipyards during World War II, and was sunk by US airplanes in April 1945 on its way to the battle of Okinawa. The museum's centerpiece is a 1/10th scale model of the huge vessel, an exact replica that is over 26 meters long. Exhibits include a real Zero aircraft, one-man and two-man submarines and other nautical treasures. Exhibits for the kids include a full-scale ferry docking simulator and props from the "Space Battleship Yamato" movie. The museum in downtown Kure, a short walk from the train station, overlooks the shipyards where modern supertankers are built.
